Common sense, education, and authenticity, in politics?! Well that's what one of Coquitlam's new city counselors is attempting to do, with a little help from his Catholic faith of course:

Terry O'Neill lives a life of service. This approach to life, combined with authentic leadership and common sense, has served him well, first as a journalist, then as an activist with Signal Hill, and now as a Coquitlam city councillor.

"I try to serve people the best way I can," said the longtime Coquitlam resident. "The best way to serve people is to educate them."
